Alumni-Seminar: Reflecting Biodiversity. Holistic approaches and regional adaptation
The Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW) is pleased to announces the International DAAD Alumni-Seminar "Reflecting Biodiversity – Holistic approaches and regional adaptation", which will convene 12– 15 September 2014 in Bonn. The seminar - organized and hosted by the FIW's Department Strategic Partnerships - is scheduled in the run-up to the international BION conference "Biodiversity Today for Tomorrow" (17 – 19 September 2014).
Based on biocentric approaches in social sciences, philosophy and cultural studies, this seminar focuses on biodiversity as a transdisciplinary field, in which ecological, political, cultural and economic aspects and challenges are profoundly interlinked. Especially holistic views and approaches will be of interest and shall be discussed intensively, as they mark basic shifts of perspectives and introduce practical steps to preserve biodiversity at the same time.
